• Look Out, Brian's About

    He's done it again! Club Member Brian Radam who runs the British Lawnmower Museum in Southport will be appearing on various BBC TV shows over the coming months (and on a TV channel in China).

    According to the report in his local paper, Brian has recently been recording for three BBC programmes. One of these is a new "people show" which features members of the public with unusual talents (we assume it's something to do with mowers) and one is the new series from the team that made "The Boat The Guy Built" but this time recreating some more Victorian inventions. And finally, with his colleagues from the mower museum Brian will also be appearing on the Egg Heads quiz show.

    Oh, and he's also recorded something for Chinese TV about the history of the mower. We wonder what they will make of it over there?

    Over the years Brian has probably featured on more TV and radio shows talking about mowers than any other of our members. Looks like that's set to continue for some time to come...

  • Oxford To Italy In 30 Days

    Ok, so this isn't exactly an old lawn mower story but we do like our stunts and this seems like a lot of fun. It also has echoes of those long-distance mower journeys that Ransomes organised in the 1950s that we've featured on the site before. This looks slightly more glamorous to us and the weather will probably be a bit warmer than October in Edinburgh. More at http://www.bg-tour.eu/
